Here are some activities to try this week.
I hope you are having a great summer holiday and enjoying the sun, when it makes an appearance.
Thanks to one of our lovely parents, Arthur Banks, we have a fantastic virtual tour of the Foundation Stage environment.
We would like you to share the tour with your children so they have a better understanding of what to expect in September.

Here is another little bedtime story for you.
Which animal would you like the zoo to send you?
Special request from Willow. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
What an unforgettable year!
Despite the unusual circumstances, we have still managed to cram in many amazing memories and so many giggles. The children have worked extremely hard and coped with lockdown fantastically well.
On behalf of all the EYFS staff, I would just like to say how proud we are of our children. Everyday, they have made us smile and it has been an absolute pleasure to watch them blossom into the amazing little super stars they are today.
Below is a video which shows just how much they have grown!
We’d like to thank you for all of the kind messages we have received and we hope you have a relaxing summer! 🌞
See you in September 🤗
Hope you all enjoy our last bedtime story of the Summer Term!
I will pop a couple on the website over the holidays.
Until then I have created a folder with them all in to make it easier to find them.
Hope you enjoy 😀
I love to make patterns. You can make a pattern using almost anything! Food, cutlery, toys … the possibilities are endless. Can you tell an adult what would come next in my patterns? Can you make a pattern of your own?
Comment below to tell me your pattern or send me a picture to email@example.com
Parents, get the ear plugs out! Mrs Hanratty is singing again!
Singing nursery rhymes is an important part in the development of early literacy skills.
Here is a short video with 4 nursery rhymes on. Please encourage your children to join in by singing and copying the actions for the songs.
Hope you all enjoy 😊
